This concept paper outlines the design of the first π-conjugated organic polymer with magnetic ordering. This rational, "bottom-up" macromolecular design is based on synthesis and study of polyarylmethyl polyradicals with increasing number of exchange-coupled unpaired electron spins. The prospects for attaining organic polymer magnets with stability at ambient temperature and/or higher magnetic ordering temperatures will be discussed.
